Photos can be adapted to sketches for embroidery designs. This is a great way to commemorate special locations in your life.

Relaxed Option

A simple outline with backstitch is a nice way to stitch up the design quickly.

Intense Option

The Intense Option uses a variety of stitches in a single colour. This gives the embroidery piece a lot of texture and interest.
